those that oppose senator cruz. probably the most outspoken were john mccain and bob corker. they said it was never disagreeing on obama care. these were tactical differences. what was the tactic that was offered that would be an alternative? did you get a straight answer on that? >> not really. they looked at the numbers and thought it was impossible to get to a place where anybody could pick off moderate democrats and that democrats would then vote to defund obama care. they didn't see how the leverage would be there to get to that point. i don't think you can talk down their antipathy for obama care. >> let's assume because a lot of conservatives including myself would have preferred they were united and stayed strong. that wasn't the case in the senate. for a long time it was in the house. i don't think the speaker did this. with a lot of purpose. i think he was pushed. if the republicans had held as one in the house and senate do you think it would have been a stand-off forever? >> no. that's a great point. it's a big if. there were a lot of break ages at the gipg. 213 i think the
